Yes, but if I do not say anything, it's only compatible with a Dual Action Polisher ... not a rotary ?!

Hook and loop fastening so attaches to your backing pad on the rotary.

The blurb suggests using it with a drill, so should be Ok fitted to a Rotary polisher.

There's a seperate hex connector for the drill but backing plates on a DA and rotary are different and not interchangeable so unless it says it's for use on a rotary I'd agree with OP it's not suitable.

Good find though for a drill or DA

Ahh, Yes, I hadn't appreciated that these weren't velcro backed, Sorry.

There should be some out there, I admit it has been a while since I last looked but there used to be several different pads for the rotary. I have a vague notion Chemical Guys used to sell one

Yes, there are the Chemical Guys hook and loop carpet or upholstery brushes. Available from various places and will suit rotary, Da or drill when used with a suitable back plate.
The Flex in the picture shows a backing plate and a hook and loop brush to my eyes.
There are also cheaper types for a drill that have a stub attached to the back plate and I seem to remember coming across an adaptor to go to 14mm.
However in my experience and I have some of the Chemical Guys brushes, they are not particularly effective when used with a rotary or da as they only spin in one direction which is ok if it is lifting the pile of the material but space often dictates and all they do is flatten it.
Without careful use it is also easy to wear the material and end up with a patchy fluffy fabric.
There is next to no cleaning action as far as I am concerned. A wet and dry vac and gentle brushing gives much better results or use with a drill where you can work in either direction. which is sometimes useful for lifting the pile prior a vac to remove dust and solids. Then wet vac.
